1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    If you can get your hands on it where you live, COS also does some pretty nice (and very nicely priced) Chelsea boots

    The shape on these are a bit better, and they aren't entirely overcome by the gore-stretch stuff.

    I imagine Frye probably has something similar in their line too. If either your budget or your patience allows, you could save up your money and look into brands like APC, Surface to Air, Margiela, Common Projects, etc.


    (FWIW: the review on that forum described, if I'm not mistaken, the cheapness of the shoe's leather and the weakness of the sole. So yeah, I'd stay away from them.)

    I will take a look into those brands, thank you.

    These boots are a bit better than the last I posted (?)

    So these:

    or these (in black):

    Or should I hold out to find a used pair of Margiela, or APC side zip/chelsea boots (I am looking for a size 39/40)?

    First ones looks good, don't like the soles though.
